WATCH: Jordan Crooks Swims 9-Second 25 Fly from a Push

Recently, SwimSwam got the opportunity to film a workout with the University of Tennessee in conjunction with the Pro Swim Series stop in Knoxville. One highlight of this practice was world champion Jordan Crooks, who has been on a tear this season in and out of the NCAA. Most recently, Crooks split 19.8 on the 200 medley relay in the 50 fly and won the 100 fly in 45.7 at a dual meet against Georgia.

Above, see Crooks working on his fly speed in the middle of the workout, pushing a sub-10 second 25 fly while taking just 4 strokes.

Hey, he’s a great swimmer; Jace Brown of Texas A&M swam an opening 8.96 25 fly leg on the 200 medley relay at the Art Adamson Invitational this past November! Don’t know how that compares but it was impressive as well!!

this isnt that impressive. lets be real. anybody who goes 46.5 or faster in the 100 fly SCY is realistically capable of this

I agree. 18 years ago I went 48.5 in the fly and I could push 10s in 25 flys. This should be not surprise that he can go 9s.
